Does anyone know why the change was made between 56 and 57 of still having only two classes but changing the names from A B to A AA?
Probably done for very early PC reasons as the Minor League Class structure didn't change from AAA AA A B C D until the 1963 season.

FWIW-Bill Davis stadium was not opened until the 1997 OSU season. Any games played at OSU during the years mentioned would have been at Trautman Field. I think Trautman seated around 1500 where as Bill Davis seats 4000 plus.
Always a thrill to be in the final four regardless of the venue.

My father- in-law was the third baseman for the 1928 Centerville team. It was so much fun to hear him proudly tell the stories of that team. They won the first state championship in baseball ever played and that is Centerville's only championship in baseball ever.

BINGO ~ it was for PC...but there was also a change around the same time as to how the Class-B (soon to be single A) basketball tournament was structured.

I also appreciated the listing all the state high school champs, especially my alma mater's wins in 2008 and 2009. I believe they (Patrick Henry Patriots) were the first team in rural N.W. Ohio to garner state titles in all three major boys sports of football (2005), basketball (1997) and baseball (2008). If I'm recalling correctly, this feat was later matched by a neighboring school just South of PH, the Ottawa-Glandorf Titans.

Just saw this, I pitched for X HI. The Reading game was my first start and only 2nd appearance, there were probably about 20 pro scouts there to watch Osteen, after I lost 1 to 0, could hardly miss about 10 of them come over to talk to our coach Berning. They had no idea who I was.
Richard Berning was X Baseball Coach when you played?
